Red Velvet Whoopie Pies!!


I had planned to make these whoopies yesterday so the post would have been up in order to celebrate the Chinese New Year, but the weekend was busy and so I literally made these tonight.

I used the Red Velvet Whoopie Pie recipe from the Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days and the cream cheese filling from The Whoopie Pie Book by Claire Ptak. 

Then bought some really fun Shimmer Spray in gold made by Dr. Oetker. This spray was a lot of fun, but made it hard to get a good picture as it was so shiny!

I choose red velvet because of this passage taken from wikipedia on symbolism during the Chinese New Year:

"Red is the predominant colour used in New Year celebrations. Red is the emblem of joy, and this colour also symbolises virtue, truth and sincerity. On the Chinese opera stage, a painted red face usually denotes a sacred or loyal personage and sometimes a great emperor. Candies, cakes, decorations and many things associated with the New Year and its ceremonies are coloured red..."
